Slovakia applies for €29 billion from “Juncker package”

As part of the €315-billion so-called Juncker package proposed by European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker, Slovakia will apply for support for 125 projects amounting to €29 billion, the government said January 21.

The projects in knowledge-based and digital economy, the energy union, transport, social infrastructure, resources and the environment, as well as multi-sectoral projects of local self-governments, they said.

Projects in transport infrastructure make up the biggest share in the overall pool. There are 37 such projects totalling €12.7 billion, which primarily focus on the road network, but also on railway infrastructure. In knowledge-based and digital economy, there are 10 projects worth €3.7 billion, the SITA newswire wrote.

In energy, there are 22 projects for €3.2 billion, 17 environmental projects would need €3.8 billion. In the case of multi-sectoral projects of self-governments, there are 38 proposed worth €5.4 billion, and in social infrastructure, there is one project for €150 million.

The submitted projects have so far not been subject to specific evaluation, selection, or approval. The decision which projects will be supported from Juncker’s investment plan will be made in Brussels
